GROUP W PRESIDENT SAYS OPTIONS REMAIN ON HTS FUTURE
Published August 27, 1996
Don Mitzner, President of Group W Satellite Communications, was interviewed in BROADCASTING & CABLE. Mitzner was asked during the Q&A about Fox/Liberty's bid for team rights to the Bullets, Caps, and Orioles, now held by Westinghouse-owned HTS. Mitzner said they "had a number of opportunities and capabilities," with the situation, adding, "That issue is not over, and we have a number of things that we are evaluating right now." On Group W's commitment to RSNs, Mitzner said with HTS and the Midwest Sports Channel, "we've tried to put together a little broader sports presence because of the tremendous skill that we have with Group W sports marketing and our ability to sell advertising time. ... We're stepping back and saying: What makes sense? What do we do with those businesses? How do we leverage them within CBS sports organization?" (B&C, 8/26).
